Maybe you should have thought about this and just done your damn job. Hey, let’s all have a pity party for the guy.
“Democrats and Republicans in Congress have to get this done,” Obama said, according to a rush transcript, referencing the ongoing “fiscal cliff” talks. “But they’re not there yet. They are close, but they’re not there yet. And one thing we can count on with respect to this Congress is that if there is even one second left before you have to do what you’re supposed to do, they will use that last second.”
Obama then veered into his New Year’s Eve plans. “So as of this point, it looks like I’m going to be spending New Year’s here in D.C.,” he said. “You all are going to be hanging out in D.C. too.”
It’s not clear where else he’d go, though his family is currently vacationing in Hawaii.
He should try going to Hell. We hear it’s warm this time of year.
